On June 1, a day before the severe weather struck, AccuWeather's forecasts included impact-driven details that specifically warned about the potential for isolated damaging wind gusts across the Northeast. The forecasts were updated on June 2, highlighting the threats of hail and damaging winds, allowing businesses to mitigate risks and protect their interests proactively.
